OK, I 've got a BSR stage 3 and K+N Typhoon for like 3 yrs now and thought that the factory underhood piece would only cool the battery , now that the ECU is somewhere else. <p>It looks like , removing this piece would give more air to the air filter as well as the ECU ... with the cost of Battery cooling (how important is that?) I'll find out soon.....

Re: air snorkel removal (jdsr917)

I only removed the snorkel part. I thought about the , heat shield underhood foam stuff, but saw that the paint ain't perfect under this. Might just do it, after all our hoods are aluminum and can dispate heat better than steel , a spray can should fix this. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: air snorkel removal (V50_T5)

I Think someone Else did this , but Never Heard anything about<br>How It Played Out. I looked into to this as I have done some Under Tray Mods to Get Air - Out of the Engine bay During - Forward Moment &<br>Also to Aid in Up- Draft when Sitting .<p>So Here goes , Looking at Mod Your Talking about - The Air Seems to Flow Down to the Transmission Area . Depending On How Hot Your Area is<br>and How Your Maintenance On Your Vech is Means a Lot !<p>I'm running a 6 Spd. Manual so The Air Flow is Not as Important .<br>BUTT<br>The Positive Air Pressure Is Very Important It Gets all the Air Moving in the Right Direction - Down and Out - of the Engine Bay .<p>I was Thinking of Directing It - Toward the Turbo Area More to Cool the Cat and Turbo Housing more . <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Here's to - - Down & Out ----- Activia ---- LOL <br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The Hell with the BATTERY<BR><BR>
